I've realised that I only blog when I've got a DT card to put up. Hmmmmm, must be more to it than that, so thought I'd show you something else. I've just hosted a swap where we had to make 3 tags and each one had to have a lady on it. It felt like ages since I'd joined a swap, even though I host at least one a month and I really enjoyed doing these. I use so many digi images now that it was an absolute treat to get my rubber out again. I'd forgotten how much I love stamping.

I used my fabulous distress ink pads to colour some ordinary luggage tags, blending my colours and spritzing the purple one. The stamps are from the 'Cameo' plate from Lost Coast Designs. I just LOVE their stamps.

I was also asking the girls on the Promarker DT team today about the time they spend on cards. I went into my craft room this afternoon and spent 5 hours on a card and...it's not even finished yet!!! It's nothing special at all, so how can it possibly take so long? It's no wonder us crafters don't have time for housework, lol.

Just found out that my Lavender and Lace card is one of the five chosen winners over at OSAAT for displaying their Birthday Bash banner. Soooooooo many gorgeous entries, so I'm well chuffed.

I think I'll join in:
CRAFTY EMMA'S - Bold and bright.
WHOOPSIE DAISY - Anything but a square.
PENNY'S PAPER CRAFTY - Anything goes.
STAMP INSANITY - Find your Zen.
